San Miguel de Allende is a truly magnificent Mexican location. It is also becoming a locale of choice for American and Canadian expats. There is a highly developed infrastructure that supports a very large and sophisticated English speaking community there. Culture abounds, and there is extremely active social calendar. Real estate in San Miguel is among the most beautiful in the world, and your dollar can buy you so much more house than in North America. It is very easy to find great help, and for a small budget you can obtain great weekly staff, such as a cleaner, gardener, etc. The weather is magnificent, with warm, dry Spring like weather the bulk of the year. I lead exciting home buyer trips to San Miguel. Join me on one of these exciting tours to view and buy real estate in San Miguel. http://www.livinginsanmiguel.com
